It seems that everyone wants a piece of BlackBerry these days despite reports of the company’s demise, although we’re guessing this could be why many are showing interest as they believe they might be able to acquire the company for a good price. In any case the latest report comes from the Globe and Mail who have published a report, suggesting that former Apple CEO, John Sculley, might be one of the possible parties that could be interested in purchasing BlackBerry. Given that Sculley was recently quoted as saying that he believes BlackBerry will survive, the report by the Globe and Mail might not be so far-fetched after all.
When asked to comment on the rumors, Sculley mentioned that he could not comment on the matter, but did state that “I’ve been a long-time BlackBerry fan and user.” Given that he did not actually deny the report would suggest that there is a grain of truth to it, although until it has been made official, do take it with a grain of salt for now. So far we’ve heard how BlackBerry could be picked up by financial institutions and tech giants, which is admittedly a lot of interest for a company that many seem to think will collapse.
